Between Giants Playoff games, some flying activities and bbq’s this weekend was shot. Shot from a building perspective, but not from a fun perspective. Although we lost the game, it was fun to go to Game 2 of NLDS Giants vs Dodgers with close friends (you’ll recognize Sam, one of the build crew). The next morning I headed out to Byron Airport (C83) to start my checkout to qualify as a tow pilot in a PA-25 Pawnee. As part of the that checkout, I needed to get some instruction in a glider itself. It was quite fun to see how the non-powered community operates.
I digress. I was able to get up this morning for a pre-dawn session. (It’s starting to get cold in the hangar!). It was a relatively straight forward activity of deburring all the parts for the rear wing spars in preparation for priming tomorrow evening. I also did the countersinking for the W-707F holes that require it. I decided to use the deburr tool to do it as it was only 8 holes, and I didn’t feel like setting up the countersink cage. Below are some picture highlights of the work.
You are really working on this “wing”. Congratulations. Glad you tried gliding.. it was uncle Sandro great passion.
